For nearly 20 years, Algalita has been searching for answers on plastic pollution in the marine ecosystem. Since 1994, Captain Moore and our team of researchers have gone on 11 sea expeditions in five oceans. The data from these voyages continue to shape Algalita’s research and educational programs, as well as the scientific community, corporate decision-makers, and government agencies around the world. Algalita donated Debris Science Investigation kits to every school that participated in the 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, and this year's 2017-18 Trash Free Lunch Challenge.
